Dance Little Jean

Original and similar lyrics
(Ibbotson) Played a wedding for the money, and I wish I could've told the bride and groom just what I think of marriage, what's in store after the honeymoon. I was rumbling through the verses 'bout how men and women ought to live apart, how the promise never made cannot be broken and can never break a heart. Suddenly from out of nowhere this little girl came spinning across the floor, her crinolines were billowing beneath the skirt of calico she wore. As her joy fell on the honored guests, each one of them was drawn into her dream, and they laughed and stamped and clapped their hands and hollered at her 'dance little Jean!' And they said dance little Jean, this day is for you. Two people that you love stood up to say I do. Dance little Jean, a prayer that you had was answered today, your mom is marrying your dad. Well, the cynic's heart just melted as I figure what this gift together meant And how it ended years of tears and sad confusion that the little girl had spent. They told the band to pack it up about the time the couple cut the cake, but we stayed and we played all night long for love and laughs and little Jeannie Sage. We played dance little Jean, this day is for you. Two people that you love stood up to say I do. And they said dance little Jean, this day is for you. Two people that you love stood up to say I do. Dance little Jean, a prayer that you had was answered today, your mom is marrying your dad. And they said dance little Jean, this day is for you. Two people that you love stood up to say I do. Dance little Jean, a prayer that you had was answered today, your mom is marrying your dad.

Come To Da Party

KRS-ONE "I Got Next"
[KRS] One, two, three.. [Joe] Come to da party, come to the dance Everyone is fightin So they fired up, up and away Come to da party, come to the dance To pull out the vinyl so they fired up, up and away [KRS-One] Yeah, yeah Hardcore lyric comin at ya they attackin ya Rappers bite like Dracula the soul of hip-hop I'm puttin back in ya, with the South Bronx vernacular Bound to put the crack in your armor, I am much sharper than a lot of other mic rockers, slightly eccentric but everything's authentic, when I said, I'm hip-hop, I meant it Emcees wanna debate the issue, but false though If they studied they would see that they are hip-hop also Hip-Hop you can't do it, you gots to be it You can't confine it, you have to free it, so you can see it as your expression, and learn the lesson, on life in ghetto sections and what you feel is the forward direction for black people, not these Star Wars save that for R2-D2 I got five fingers like Bruce Lee do And with the five fingers I grab microphones and bring the stinger to DJ's, rappers, singers and beer drinkers This MC's a thinker, unlike others but I won't diss yaz You're still my brothers and sisters, Kris is ONE aspect of hip-hop rap Negative rap, positive rap, forget that black it's a trap to set us back, concentrate on various rap talents Presently the rap radio format is unbalanced You either got the player, or the concious rhyme sayer all day, on your radio, not with a different flavor Someone has to DIE before you hear a concious record People don't like gangsta rap, but concious rap, they don't respect it The truth is people are afraid of black youth Our expressions, our lessons and gold teeth, so.. [Joe] Come to da party, come to the dance Everyone is shoutin So they fired up, up and away Come to da party, come to the dance Everyone is singin so they fired up, up and away

Grand Canyon

ANI DIFRANCO "Educated Guess"
I love my country By which I mean I am indebted joyfully To all the people throughout its history Who have fought the government to make right Where so many cunning sons and daughters Our foremothers and forefathers Came singing through slaughter Came through hell and high water So that we could stand here And behold breathlessly the sight How a raging river of tears Cut a grand canyon of light Yes, I've bin so many places Flown through vast empty spaces With stewardesses whose hands Look much older than their faces I've tossed so many napkins Into that big hole in the sky Bin at the bottom of the Atlantic Seething in a two-ply Looking up through all that water And the fishes swimming by And I don't always feel lucky But I'm smart enough to try Cuz humility has buoyancy And above us only sky So I lean in Breathe deeper that brutal burning smell That surrounds the smoldering wreckage That I've come to love so well Yes, color me stunned and dazzled By all the red white and blue flashing lights In the American intersection Where black crashed head on with white Comes a melody Comes a rhythm A particular resonance That is us and only us Comes a screaming ambulance A hand that you can trust Laid steady on your chest Working for the better good (Which is good at its best) And too, bearing witness Like a woman bears a child... With all her might Born of the greatest pain Into a grand canyon of light I mean, no song has gone unsung here And this joint is strung crazy tight And people bin raising up their voices Since it just ain't bin right With all the righteous rage And all the bitter spite That will accompany us out Of this long night That will grab us by the hand When we are ready to take flight Seatback and traytable In the upright and locked position Shocked to tears by each new vision Of all that my ancestors have done Like, say, the women who gave their lives So that I could have one People, we are standing at ground zero Of the feminist revolution Yeah, it was an inside job Stoic and sly One we're supposed to forget And downplay and deny But I think the time is nothing If not nigh To let the truth out Coolest f-word ever deserves a fucking shout! I mean Why can't all decent men and women Call themselves feminists? Out of respect For those who fought for this I mean, look around We have this Yes I love my country By which I mean I am indebted joyfully To all the people throughout its history Who have fought the government to make right Where so many cunning sons and daughters Our foremothers and forefathers Came singing through slaughter Came through hell and high water So that we could stand here And behold breathlessly the sight How a raging river of tears Is cutting a grand canyon of light

Cemetary Visions

Ancient Ceremony
Where Love is denied fatal Passion may shine bright Like to me in this destinuous Night Visions granted by the Sphere of Dreams Unearthly Desire Whilst entering the Castle Halls Magnificent Whisper welcomes me As Bride's ghostly Grace is unveiled the Courtain of my Tragedy opens Sweet Choirs like the Tunes of Paradise She spreads Bewitchment with Her magenta Eyes and Darkside Kisses poison me Oh Eternity, I long for Thy Caress Speak to me in golden Tongue My Love once was denied now Thee all feel my Hate and Pride for I seduce and kill with Delight Ethereal Embrace my Tears are Diamonds to Her This lovelost Spirit dines on my Soul Now dance with me like dead Leaves in Autumn-Wind I adrift... the cold Arms of Death await Now dance with me like the Stars around the Moon Bride's ghostly Grace Where Love was denied Thousands for their Lifes have cried as She haunts without Mercy the Night
